Essays on the Microstructure of Informed Trading and Hidden Orders in Futures Markets

PHUENSANE, PONGSUTTI (2016) Essays on the Microstructure of Informed Trading and Hidden Orders in Futures Markets. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.



The thesis seeks a better understanding of the market microstructure topic, evaluates an informed trading measurement tool that is available for econometricians, and attempts to measure the impact of the presence of hidden liquidity to market quality. The two favorable prevailing informed trading detection, PIN, and VPIN models are used to investigate the informed trading activity around LIBOR manipulation in the LIBOR reference futures market- Eurodollar futures. These two models show a significant performance as an early warning system, however, there is not statistically significant differences relative to the event in the long-run variation.

In addition to the chapter seven of this thesis, I examine the relationship between market quality and hidden liquidity, uncovering a strong positive effect from hidden order to market quality proxies.
